IMPORTANT NOTE: We're just getting round to updating our site after the shock announcement, just before the end of February 2019, by Edinburgh University Students Association that they have signed a deal with the Edinburgh Science Festival giving them exclusive use of the Pleasance complex throughout April 2019 (and 2020, 2021!). Our on-line box office has been updated with this turn of events - click here to go there.

The venue for all our April 2019 gigs (Wed 3, 10, 17, 24) is to be the Ukrainian Community Centre, 14 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5AB - click here for a map. The venue is licensed to sell alcohol. A lot of you will know that this is also the venue of the Acoustic Music Centre during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe each August.

We're back at the Pleasance Cabaret Bar for Dave Burland's gig on Wed 1 May et seq.

Apart from the change of venue everything else is stet - showtimes, doors open, performers.

Until and including Wednesday 27 March, Edinburgh Folk Club gigs will still take place from 8.00pm (doors/bar 7:30pm) to 10.45pm (approx) on Wednesday evenings in (click for map) The Pleasance Cabaret Bar, 60 The Pleasance, Edinburgh EH8 9TJ. For information not obtainable elsewhere call m: 07968 131737.

Click on each performer's name for info about them and to go to the on-line box office to buy advance tickets when available. We try to provide advance tickets up to (approximately) two months ahead so if you find a box office link unavailable here it just means we haven't got round to that gig yet. You could, however, go directly to our on-line box office here to see if the show is on sale there.

Shows

Now in its 45th season (2018-2019), the club meets every Wednesday (summer and xmas breaks excepted) and starts promptly at 8.00pm with an opening act, maybe two, followed by the headliner's first set.

After an interval there is usually a song from one of our residents, followed by a short set from the opening act, the raffle(!), and the headliner's second set. We aim to finish around 10.45pm or thereabouts.

Tickets are available in advance for each event from by clicking on the on-line box office links in the list of shows.
Often you can get a ticket at the door from 7.30pm on the night (subject to availability).
